1* – the Game kickoff here
11* Goal – Mahrez with the opener here
15* – City half-clear the corner, but Marquinhos – who scored a header in the first leg – gets his head to the follow-up cross… but it loops up and off the bar!
ALSO WATCH: Mahrez great goals against PSG
20* –What a chance for Di Maria.
Ederson rolls the ball out, City lose possession cheaply to Di Maria, and he has half the goal to aim at with Ederson out of position… but he curls it wide from 25 yards!
25* – Concern for Kimpembe here as he’s down and needs treatment – he was caught in the face by Stones on that Marquinhos chance.
28* – Another PSG attack comes to nothing.
Given PSG’s start, they will feel the 1-0 scoreline is harsh – but at this level, if you don’t take your chances then you’ll leave empty-handed.
35* – Herrera goes up with Silva and goes down holding his stomach thinking he’s won a free-kick, but is quickly up and incensed it’s given the other way.
38* – Silva has a little nibble on Neymar – the Brazilian squares up to the City playmaker. City are taking it in turns to foul the PSG star. Clever play.
42* – City look relatively comfortable? They are far from their best and have had scares, but Neymar and PSG look like they are missing Mbappe.
45* – Mahrez goes outside on the right of the box and shoots low – Navas blocks well with his feet.
PSG players head out for the second half, but Mbappe remains wrapped up in his training gear.
46* – City on the front foot immediately – De Bruyne sees two passes outside the box cut out, and Navas slides out to prevent a corner.
47* – Neymar is last out for PSG – he needs to put in a shift right now.
52* –Great run from Neymar, but Zinchenko makes a brilliant low block to stop the shot!
City defenders celebrate like they’ve scored a goal, but this game isn’t done yet…
59* – Foden tries to make amends as he hits a low shot which skips up off the turf, and Navas makes another clever stop.
63* – Another huge City block, this time from Dias, as he selflessly jumps in the way of a Di Maria volley.
65* – GOAL! Man City 2-0 PSG (4-1) | Riyad Mahrez,
Is that the goal that seals the tie for City?
It’s a thrilling breakaway from City, De Bruyne shifting the ball out left to Foden, who plays it back inside to the Belgian, then gets it back, and picks out Mahrez at the back post.
71* –Verratti has just been booked, and goes in on Mahrez with a silly lunge.
He should be off for that – this could get very ugly.
76* – Foden has cracked an effort off the post, and De Bruyne now sends an effort wide.
81* – De Bruyne is on a booking, so this is a needed sub. Off he goes for Jesus, with Sterling on for Bernardo.
86* – A nice moment for City fans as Sergio Aguero makes one last Champions League appearance in sky blue at the Etihad, replacing Foden.
